NYC Hep B & C Personal Stories Workshop

The life stories of people who have personally experienced Hepatitis B & C are extraordinary.

A small group meets monthly in mid-town Manhattan to share our personal stories, and work on ways to develop them so that they can help the world better understand the reality of living with Hepatitis, as well as prevention, management & care.

Please Contact Us if you have a story to tell! You can share your story from afar, or you can join our group.

We are looking for writers, artists, video, photographers, producers and dissemination opportunities to support the goals of the group! If you are in the position to help support the group development or contribute artistically or technically, please also contact us.

See some of the stories on our page: Living with Hep B or Living with Hep C.
